Very cool project from Adafruit customer Carl- thanks for sharing on Show & Tell as well! Check out more here.
Here i have created a laser cut latex t-shirt. The tottenkitten logo is back lit by a silicone diffuser that contains 3 ws2811 5mm through hole LEDs.
Controller is an adafruit trinket; paired with Li-pol backpack charger. The can above the charger is a simple vibration sensor (spring in a can). Charger and trinket are connected with bent pin headers to create a simple bus bar for easy connection of power and ground wires. Whole kit is wrapped in leather and riveted closed.
The controller pack closed up with rivets and magnets glued to the surface for easy mounting inside the top. The diffuser is silicone poured out onto plastic then pre-soldered LED’s inserted while the silicone was still soft. extra pour on top to seal in the LEDs.

Adafruit Pro Trinket – 3V 12MHz: Trinket’s got a big sister in town – the Pro Trinket 3V! Pro Trinket combines everything you love about Trinket with the familiarity of the core Arduino chip, the ATmega328. It’s like an Arduino Pro Mini with more pins and USB tossed in.
Trinket’s a year old now, and while its been great to see tons of tiny projects, sometimes you just need more pins, more FLASH, and more RAM. That’s why we designed Pro Trinket, with 18 GPIO, 2 extra analog inputs, 28K of flash, and 2K of RAM. Read more.
Adafruit Pro Trinket LiIon/LiPoly Backpack Add-On: If you have a Pro Trinket you probably know it’s the perfect little size for a portable project. This LiPoly backpack makes it really easy to do! Instead of wiring 2 or 3 boards together to make a charging system, this little PCB sits on top of the Pro Trinket and allows a LiPoly/LiIon battery to plug in. When the Pro Trinket USB port is powered, the battery is recharged automatically. Unplug the USB port and the Pro Trinket will switch over to the rechargeable battery. Read more.
